LUFC Howson makes it four

John Howson became the fourth Leeds player to get into double figures this season with his double strike against Doncaster Rovers.

Luciano Becchio currently leads the way with 17 goals in all competitions, Max Gradel is next with 14, Davide Somma with 12 and John Howson with 10.

Both Bradley Johnson and Robert Snodgrass who have 6 and 7 goals respectively will still be hopeful of reaching double figures as the side have now netted 74 times in all competitions this season.

Following Leeds has certainly been the place to be this season if you want to see plenty of goals.

In 35 Championship games, they have now seen 124 goals in 35 games at an average of 3.54 goals per game.

Leeds have netted 67 goals, the best in the Championship, but for a side challenging for promotion they have also conceded 57, with only three sides having a worse defensive record in the division.

There as now been 71 goals in 18 Championship games at Elland Road at an average of 3.94 per game with the last three games heralding 17 goals alone.

Leeds have scored 40 goals at home, the best in the division, with only Watford (28) scoring more than Leeds (27) on their travels.

Simon Grayson indicated in a press interview on Saturday that he was not going to change the way Leeds approached the game, but I am sure Leeds fans would be happy with a few scrappy 1-0 wins at the moment with solid defensive displays.

Unfortunately, I can`t see this happening, so the paramedics inside Elland Road better be on standby as the stress on Leeds fans hearts must be at breaking point!

Having a look back the last time four Leeds players got into double figures was the 2000/01 season, Viduka, Smith, Bowyer and Harte with Keane one short on 9. With Johnson and Snodgrass both having a chance of getting 10, I wonder when it was the last time 5 players did it. Leeds have scored over 100 goals in the past two seasons in all competitons. Another 29 needed in 11 games (plus possible play offs) to do it again. It doesn't seem that long ago we was singing "We'll score again, don't know where don't know when" under the George Graham reign!!

Graham was trying to get a balance but the goals completely dried up, he did fix the defence but it was a dire time. We need a bit more Graham in the defence even if it means a bit less Keegan in attack.

Good news for us with so many reaching double digits, but defensively we'd embarass a u8 junior side
